This is a Bakhshayesh antique rug woven in North West Persia at the beginning of the 20th century circa 1900 -1910. This piece features a central medallion divided into four quadrants each enclosing a highly stylized palmette set on a blue-coloured background. The field is decorated with large-scaled shrub motifs that take inspiration from 18th-century Josheghan rugs set on a brick red background. The border is made up of repeating medallions surrounded by a highly geometric bush design set on a blue background creating colour contrast against the red-coloured field. This piece has a decorative design with an intricate border and a highly stylized large-scaled motif field making it a statement piece that truly stands out amongst its peers and creates a dramatic visual effect. It has been woven on a cotton foundation with all wool pile with 100% natural vegetable dyes and has been preserved in overall great condition retaining all its original full pile.
